This weekend’s new practice mix. Every song in this mix is somewhere between 115 and 125 BPM. And as always, this was mixed “live” and has no post-processing or editing work, so while it may not be perfect, it’s all me!

Depeche Mode ‘Halo (Comfortable)’
Nitzer Ebb ‘Captivate’
Art of Noise ‘Kiss (Art of Noise)’

After taking last weekend off (but hey, I gave you almost four hours in two mixes last time I updated), here’s another new practice mix. Every song in this mix is somewhere between 105 and 115 BPM. And as always, this was mixed “live” and has no post-processing or editing work, so while it may not be perfect, it’s all me!

Aftershock ‘Slave to the Vibe’
Moby ‘Bodyrock (B and H’s Bodyrob)’
Skeewiff ‘Man of Constant Sorrow’
Utah Saints ‘Funky Music’

So this is a little bit of silly self-indulgence…but then, wouldn’t that pretty much describe this entire website? 😉
Back when I was DJing at Gig’s Music Theater, I was also running a website for the club (and though I have no way of verifying this, I’ve always assumed that we were one of the first clubs to have a website running). As part of the website, I kept track of my requests, and kept a running “top requests” list. Since I archived the website as it was when the club shut down, I still have the last “top requests” list that I posted, back in 1998. Looking at it the other day, it struck me that it could make for an entertaining playlist….
So here we are: Two hours and forty-five minutes of the top club hits in 1998, as determined by the requests at an all-ages, non-alcoholic, alternative club in Anchorage, Alaska. In other words, this list probably wouldn’t match a similar list anywhere and anytime else.
It’s a little rough around the edges in spots, but that’s cause it’s recorded “live”, with no post-processing or editing. It’s not perfect, but I’ve rarely been perfect, and I think it ended up an honest and pretty fun throwback to what you’d have heard at Gig’s “back in the day”.
As the full set is almost three hours long, I’ve posted both the full mix, and separated into three pieces.
